Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
Evaporated milk is just that. It's milk that has had about 60% of the water removed from it (and you thought it came from evaporated cows). Check the label before you buy. You'll find evaporated whole milk, evaporated 2% milk, and fat-free evaporated milk. There are a lot of recipes like my Pumpkin Pie recipe that work well with evaporated milk and it also works well in sauces. I always have cans in my pantry.
